Triveni Ghat, Rishikesh

4.5
Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Witness a traditional Hindu prayer at Triveni Ghat, one of the area's most-visited ceremonies along the river. Set atop a ghat, or flight of riverfront steps, the prayer involves chanted verses along with bells and drums played by devotees. You can visit and watch as large numbers of leaf boats, filled with flowers and topped with oil candles, are set afloat on the Ganges. Alternatively, stop by one of the many nearby stalls to grab a lantern of your own and add it to the flotilla. Note that two other holy rivers, the Saraswathy and the Yamuna, join with the Ganges here. With our online itinerary creator, Rishikesh attractions like Triveni Ghat can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The Ganga aarti at the riverside is spectacular, especially in the dusk time watching the sunset. You can see the truly passionate religious followers doing the aarti - beautiful for someone coming...  more »
  • One of the best places in Rishikesh. Although some construction work is going on but you can certainly take a stroll at Marine Drive. The view of Sunset is breathtaking! Aarti is one of its kind.  more »

  • I've visited this amazing place n number of times, however it seems like a new place to me in every visit. It is always crowded but it will provide you, your part of calming atmosphere. Love this place
  • Ghat is maintained properly. Good to see proper concrete pathways and benches around. Although people are in habit of making it dirty.
